About the Property
4 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 9, vaulted ceiling living room, 3 levels
More Details: The house is located about 1/3 of the way up and into a 30 acre property, which means you are deep in the woods with no one else around. The land slopes up reasonably steeply to where the house is, and then flattens out above it. You could walk out of the house, and hike for 10 miles without seeing another person or house (I've done this).
The house itself is a post and beam three level house. The first level has two bedrooms, laundry room, and a playroom that includes a couch, TV and DVD player, and a video game player as well.
We also have the FASTEST INTERNET in the US here. We have gigabit internet, delivered via an active fiber optic cable from VTEL. Cellphone service is spotty, but the internet is the best you can get!
The playroom opens up and out onto the hillside, and the driveway as it snakes down to the town road. A slate patio sits outside, along with a grassy hillside.
The second level has a bathroom with shower, an office (where the crib is). The rest of the second floor is wide open, the living room soars up 2 stories, the dining area is encased in glass above and on 2 sides, and the open kitchen is well equipped.
In the living room are a large couch, a second smaller couch, a 24' TV, and a fireplace.
On the second floor, a large deck wraps around the house. The deck overlooks the hills, the trees, and really makes you feel like you are living in a tree house. A table and chairs are there for outdoor dining, along with two other chairs and a gas weber grill.
On the third level - a master bedroom with king size bed, a full bathroom with tub, and another bedroom with a loft bed - queen size, and underneath a smaller couch, and room for either an inflatable bed, or the crib.
The house itself is all built in wood. Huge hand-hewn pine timbers are exposed in post and beam style. The floors are wide pine planks, while the walls and ceiling/sloping roof is painted white sheetrock.
Wildlife abounds. Birds chirp and flit about. Owls hoot and hunt at night. Turkey, deer, chipmunks and many other animals are all around. A nice hiking trail loops around from outside the back door.
Testimonials: Jim, thanks for a wonderful time in Vermont. The house was lovely. The snow was beautiful. Peace and solitude. .............and those alpacas were the best (there is a one week old baby now too!)
Randall and the Thanksgiving gang.
Sue and I just spent 5 wonderful, cool and relaxing weeks in this beautiful house. We were surrounded by woods and greeted daily by the songs of birds.
The house felt like home and our two sons could visit with their families and find spacious bedrooms - even toys for the grandchildren. Our young grandchildren loved the deck because they were able to go in and out of the house at will and play without getting into trouble or falling. Our sons want us to do this again next year.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Beautiful post and beam house sits high above the valley floor. The expansive porch and windows make it seem like you're in a tree fort in the summer, and on top of the world in the winter. Then step out of the front door and onto your very own private hiking/snowshoe trail that snakes through our 30 wooded acres. In the middle of rural southern Vermont, but close to great restaurants, outlet shopping and even Lake George. 35 minutes to Bromley, Killington and Stratton; 20 minutes to Manchester. 10 minutes to Lake St. Catherine and the shops and restaurants of historic Dorset. A perfect place for family and friends to get away and enjoy beautiful Vermont!
Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: I bought this land originally to camp on, but over time we decided to build a house. Then as soon as we finished it, the company I was working for moved us to California. So it was either sell or rent. We decided to rent! So we live in the San Francisco bay area, but have a house in Vermont! You can read more about me here - http://louderback.com/about/
Why the Owner Chose Pawlet, VT, USA:
Vermont is amazing, and this area is some of the last truly wild southern vermont. Close to great food, hiking, and even not so far away from an airport. It's got everything. We have a core group of renters that have been coming up for 15 years or more, so the house isn't always available. But when it is you should definitely come up!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's got its very own hiking trails, is far away from neighbors and there's lots of wildlife. It's like living in a treehouse!
